32 Portland Street Nedlands WA 6009
UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE32 Portland Street, Nedlands
The 5 year old, architect designed, single level residence was constructed by boutique luxury builder Glenway Homes. Offering a high level of finish throughout the home, this presents a rare opportunity to secure a meticulously planned, premium quality home in a central location.
The home's clever solar passive design boasts a 7-star energy rating embracing features such as full height north facing windows and doors, solar plus glass, a solar pergola and ceiling fans and louvered windows for temperature control. To further assist with thermal control, cavity and ceiling insulation was installed, plus the home features a 5-star-rated gas hot water system, LED and low voltage lighting, solar panels, a water wise garden and efficient tap ware.
Very private from the street, it is only when you walk through the front gate that you truly discover the home's understated elegance and clean-lined facade softened by surrounding trees and gardens. It is beautifully positioned on the 905sqm corner block, allowing for gorgeous garden spaces around the home which can be seen through most windows.
A winding path, weaving around a garden bed bursting with pops of colour, leads to the front door and portico. Cladding fixed to the exterior of certain sections of the house cleverly breaks up the smooth rendered columns and adds interest to the home's minimal lines.
The large front room was designed as a home office with an adjacent powder room, and can be locked off from the rest of the house by double timber framed and opaque glass doors. Alternatively this space could be used as a second living room or guest suite.
Behind this front room is a generous sized guest bathroom and a spacious queen sized bedroom with double door wardrobes.
Through the double timber framed doors awaits an elegant gallery walkway perfect for displaying artwork with a high vaulted skylight drawing in natural light and a down-lit recessed space for objets d'art.
To the left of this walkway is another zone with two queen sized bedrooms with wardrobes and a stunning grey and white bathroom with a separate toilet.
Windows have been thoughtfully positioned within each room to gain the best light and provide a calm, tranquil outlook to a variety of garden spaces.
Recessed timber sliding doors separate the bedroom zones from the living areas at the back of the house. From the gallery walkway, gleaming Blackbutt timber floorboards draw you into the large open living and dining room, with doors leading out to two side garden spaces. One side has glass sliding doors that lead out to an expansive, north facing covered terrace protected by a solar pergola. This area can be used throughout the year for outdoor entertaining and is enhanced by colourful and lightly scented gardens.
The modern kitchen is adjacent to the dining area, interacting easily with the living spaces but mostly existing behind a wall so that only the breakfast bench is on display from the lounge area. It is well designed with plenty of bench space, cupboards, Miele wall oven, induction cooktop and dishwasher plus a gas wok burner, steam oven, plate warmer and double fridge (plumbing is available).
Behind the kitchen is an extremely spacious laundry complete with plenty of storage and a bench space that could act as a desk or artist's studio. An adjoining mud room with further built-in storage is a great space for keeping bags, shoes and sporting equipment out of the way. Grey tiles and white cabinetry keeps this area sleek and minimal but highly functional.
This really is a thoughtfully designed, masterfully built and light filled modern home that will suit a variety of family living needs. We look forward to showing you through.
